Vinyl Floor Tiles

Early 'plastic' floor tiles often had a small amount of asbestos added for extra strength in the material. The material is very stable and has a low asbestos content (up to 7%). In normal service, fibre release is unlikely so therefore, under present legislation, they do not need to be replaced. Generally, if tiles are in good condition, they can often be left alone and 'managed in situ' by annual inspection and simple maintenance.
